Description

Studio Genkan is a British independent game studio working on their first title, Perpetual Night.

History

Early History

January 2015 saw the first meeting for Perpetual Night in an Oxford pub. Since then the team has grown in size and skill, and enjoyed showing early builds of the game at various game shows across the UK, most notably Insomnia and EGX Rezzed.

Artistic Experimentation and Collaboration

The team has a particular interest in experimentation in video games, and are employing open-ended design methodologies and blurring the lines between ‘games as art’ and ‘art as games’. The results of this can be seen in Perpetual Night’s unusual world structure and the Artist Residency Programme. They are also dedicated to forming strong links with their community, with several competitions planned for the audience to get involved in designing various elements of the game.
